Doherty, 45, has been very vocal and generous with her thank yous and letters of appreciation throughout her fight. The actress has thanked her husband
, her oncologist
, and her mom
, among others. And now she’s continuing that list of gratitude by thanking the radiation machine she has named Maggie.
On Wednesday, Doherty posted a photo on her Instagram
account of her posing alongside the machine
with an introduction to Maggie. The post includes what is essentially a fan letter to the machine.
“This is Maggie. I've seen Maggie five days a week for what seems like forever. We have a love hate relationship. I love her because she's part of the life saving treatment I'm receiving,” Doherty wrote beside the photo.
For some, it might seem unconventional to pay tribute to a machine, and to do so this publicly for that matter, but considering how open Doherty has been about her struggle this whole time, revealing not only the hard
and the sweet
, but the truly painful
, we wouldn't expect anything less.
She continued in her post with, “I'm seeing her twice tomorrow so that I can wrap this phase up faster. Goodnight sweet Maggie. See ya tomorrow. #cancerslayer
